I was lucky enough to win not one but TWO cruises, in just three days! I couldn’t believe my luck and since then I’ve decided to enter every cruise competition I can find on the internet.

I decided to create this list of every online cruise competition to make it easier for others to find cruise competitions and enter them online as well.

I’ve even provided the answers to any quiz questions for you. (I can’t guarantee that they’re correct, but I tried my very best)

Competitions with text and postal entries

Some cruise competitions are only open to people entering via text or post. I usually don’t enter these as there is a charge to enter by text and I think that entering by post is a bit of a faff. If I ever have to post anything it usually stays in my handbag for a few weeks until I pass a post box!

However, if you’d like to enter the competitions too, then please go ahead. The links to the competition details are below.

(None at the moment)


Get notified of new cruise competitions

I send out an email each month to let people know about the latest cruise competitions. You can sign up to that here and never miss another competition.

Have you ever won a cruise?

If you’re lucky enough to win a cruise in one of these competitions, please come back and let me know. I’d love to hear about it!

Who would you take with you if you won? If you have a friend or family member who loves to cruise, take a look at this list of gifts for cruise lovers to find the perfect presents for cruise lovers!

Don’t Overpay For Your Cruise!

Here’s how I get the lowest price when I book a cruise…

1. Compare prices from every travel agent in one place.

2. Choose a trusted travel agent with a best price guarantee.

Please don’t book with any old company just because they have a cheap deal. I recommend that you find the best price and then take it to a trusted travel agent who will beat it, as well as giving you the best service.

Before you go!

  1. We have just won a cruise with MSC( before I discovered your website) and will drefinitely be entering more now that I have found you. Many thnksa for the information you provide.

  2. Thank you so very much for the competition links.
    We won a cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the seas with the Blue Light Card last year. It was a fabulous 8 nights.
    Take care x

    • Amazing, congratulations on your win!!!

  3. Hi Jenni,

    What a lovely gesture, have entered the Sky Princess comp. Don’t think I could cope on one of the other Upmarket cruises even though they do look marvellous. BY the way, we have booked on Anthem of the seas cabin 8275, do you know if there is a video out there we can view ? maybe by someone who has stayed in it. My wife is desperate to find out exact layout – thanks.

  4. Thanks so much for posting these! I have also won two cruises previously, the first was a Carnival cruise around the Med (the one that got us hooked!) and then a Xmas Markets one on QM2 which was also fantastic.

    • Oh wow, so nice to hear from a fellow winner. Do you enter a lot of competitions too? Good luck with these! Jenni

  5. Oh how I love to see and hear where you are cruising,how lovely of you to share cruising comps with us all,I love a cruise and really missed it these two years,am saving up our pennies for hopefully a cruise next year,unless my luck changes and we win one thank you both so much.

    • You’re most welcome. And good luck!

  6. Thanks for compiling these Jenny

    • You’re most welcome. Good luck!

  7. Cruise mummy, can you find links to cruise competitions in and around Australia, Asia etc.
    Ozzies are always left out of such bargains and if you look at overseas cruises they are always cheaper than cruising in and around Australia/ New Zealand. Some packages are up to 2.5 times more than a European or USA cruise.

    • Hi John, thanks for the suggestion! As far as I can see, nobody is listing all the cruise competitions for Australian residents to enter However, it looks like there are lots available. Your best bet would be to type “win a cruise” into google.com.au and you should see quite a few come up. Good luck! Jenni

  8. I looked at MSC Virtuosa which is billed as all inclusive , but on their site I noticed that several eating options were classed as chargeable , for instance the burgers and hot dogs at the pool . These have always been included on all other lines I have been with. Be nice to see a report on this!!!!

    • Hi John. I’ll be on MSC Virtuosa next week so I’ll have more info for you then. Be sure to follow me on social media for updates, Instagram is where I like to hang out most: https://www.instagram.com/cruisemummy/ Jenni

  9. I’m already booked on the first one!
    The Sky Princess one looks perfect – entered 🙂

    • Good luck!

  10. Thanks very much for sharing all these with us Jenni!

    Well done on winning some great prize cruises. Sounds amazing 🙂
    I’d love to know, did you win them through your cruise company ie for employees only or were you really lucky in beating thousands of entrants via an entry form?
    Was there any skill involved?

    Good luck for your winning your next cruise!

    • Thank you. There are some competitions which are only for travel agents and while I do enter those too, all the ones I post here are ones that anyone in the UK can enter. If any skill’s involved it’s only ever a quick Google of the answer which I do for you to save you time 🙂 Good luck!

  11. Have always wanted to go on a cruise with my partner but we could never afford it. I have entered all so fingers crossed x

    • Good luck!

  12. Ooooh I shall be entering them all ? thank you!

    • You’re welcome!
